Junko Onishi

Junko Onishi - pianist

Debuting as a recognized young virtuoso, Junko Onishi, made a splash on the New York scene after coming out of Berklee in 1989, and by 1993 had recorded with some of the top tier jazz men primarily Kenny Garrett and had a solid effort out as leader with her debut “Cruisin.”

Ms. Onishi by 1994 did a double set recording “Live At The Village Vanguard,” (Blue Note) which was well received and showed what she is capable of in a live setting at a legendary venue. She was backed on these sessions by bassist Reginald Veal and drummer Herlin Riley.

In 1995 she released “Piano Quintet Suite,” again for Blue Note in which she was accompanied by trumpeter Marcus Belgrave, alto sax man Elichi Hayashi, bassist Rodney Whitaker, and drummer Tony Rabeson.
